About the Property


Cottage Green is a gem in the heart of Rappahannock County. Located in the Village of Flint Hill, it is close to restaurants and a café, and a within a short jaunt to “little” Washington, Sperryville, and Shenandoah National Park. Its location also means that it has a cell signal and cable internet, not easy to find in the county. The home has been lovingly updated with modern conveniences, including the addition of a full bath in the owner’s suite, while keeping the charm of years gone by. Stunning wood floors throughout and lots of light combine to create a warm, welcoming space.

Sit a spell on the front porch and watch the birds and smell the roses. Entering the front door and the living room, the eye is drawn to the gorgeous fireplace with intricate wood mantle, stone surround, and highly efficient wood stove insert. Surrounded by large windows, this is a light, airy, cozy room no matter the season. The dining room ties the living room to the kitchen and the gleaming wood floors continue throughout. The kitchen features custom cabinetry with a hidden dishwasher, stainless steel appliances, and ample granite counters. Beyond the kitchen is a sunny mudroom that opens out onto the expansive deck and has lovely views. From the kitchen, the back hall leads to a full bath and the main floor bedroom, as well as the stairs and a charming arched doorway that leads back into the living room. The main floor bedroom consists of two rooms and has its own exterior door leading to the front porch.

The upper level consists of the owner’s suite and an additional bedroom, both of which have dormer windows. The owner’s suite opens to a rooftop balcony and has an adjoining dressing room, exercise room, and full bath. The bath was added to the home in early 2017.

In keeping with homes of the period, the cellar has field stone walls; a concrete floor was added more recently to make the space more usable. The first room holds most of the utilities, while the second room has more space and a door to the outside. It would make a lovely spot for a wine cellar and has plenty of room for storage.

The expansive back deck lends itself to al fresco dining and family cookouts. It has a beautiful view of the property and some hills in the distance. Just off the deck is a fenced yard, perfect for your furry friends or a large vegetable garden. A rustic garden shed adds to the property’s charm and a handy wood shed at the foot of the yard keeps your firewood dry and ready to use. The 1.64-acre property leaves plenty of room for landscaping, lawn games, or perhaps a larger fenced area. The house is set back nicely from the road and has a circular driveway and gorgeous, mature shade trees.

The Blue Door Restaurant is directly across the road, the post office is next door, and Griffin Tavern, Skyward Café, and a new market and grocery are nearby. Rappahannock and surrounding counties offer endless recreational possibilities. Shenandoah National Park is home to scenic Skyline Drive with its overlooks as well as many miles of trails. There are wineries and breweries, great restaurants and cafés, antique stores, farms and orchards, and much more. Looking for cultural activities? Visit one of the many art galleries, attend a play or a concert at one of the theaters, or visit the Rappahannock Historical Society’s museum.

Near Sperryville and “little” Washington, and convenient to Warrenton and Front Royal, this property is ideally situated for full-time residents or weekenders alike. Located less than two hours from Washington, DC, and about an hour and a half from Charlottesville, the property is within an easy driving distance for weekend getaways.
